Aloha folks!!! NEW for 2021: Turn on CC (Closed Captions) for chords and lyrics on screen! Please let me know if they're helpful. FYI I made this video before chord and lyrics onscreen were a thing, so try the CC thing out. Hope you're all doing great.🌈🌺

I must be getting better because I remember not long ago this was difficult.

Also, typically I play outside in public, used to be a musical bum, and now I even have fans!

I’m a film and television actor. Last week I brought my ukulele with me to a gig because I was stressed out. The Director suddenly said, “Didn’t I see someone has a guitar or something?” Cast and crew pointed at me. He said, “Guitar?” I said, “Ukulele.” He said, “Play a song in the next scene.”

Late 1950s, I figured a three or four chord song everyone knows, I quickly learned ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.’

So now I’m a professional ukulele player.

If I have a low g is it better to just straight island strum or still pick top string. Also, C chord to Em is easier with a strap.

Hey Cynthia, firstly thanx heaps for your tutorials really easy to follow for someone who has never been into playing any instrument. So l have started playing the ukulele and am loving it. The question I have is do you strum with your thumb all the time or only in the Somewhere over the Rainbow tutorial.🙂

Absolutely, positively the best ukulele instructor on our planet. You have a very sweet, aloha, way of teaching all of us. I’m 76 and NOT a musician. But whenever I play for a senior group, somebody will comment that they like the song “STAND BY ME”. I tell them all about you, and how YOUR ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO TEACH THE ISLAND/CALYPSO STRUM. Mahalo from the bottom of my heart Cynthia.

My island strum always went d du udu. So it should be pick du udu. Your sheet music strum instruction notation in the lesson is ldUl - uldu. What is l? If that stands for pick? Am I suppose to pick 3 times in each measure? Then the count is , the measure, the bar has more than 4 counts. Can you explain? I don’t undertake the strum. These written instructions appear different than your verbal information.

Thanks so much. I've been a guitar player forever and have owned an old Regal uke for a few years but never sat down to learn all the chords I need to play some of the songs I know.
A little girl from across the street came over today to ask if I could tune her brand new ukelele (still had the price tag attached). I tuned it and got my own ukelele out to learn some chords. This is everyone's favorite and was very easy for me.
I suggested the little girl could come over and I'd beam up some beginner lessons and we can learn a bit together as I help her with rhythm and fingering. Like to get her going quickly so she can show off for her mom and brothers and sisters. That will help keep her interested.
